Family s plea for missing musician
Family's plea for missing musician

The family of a 21-year-old musician missing in the South West have made a plea for help to find him.

Sam Carew-Reid was at the Origins Centre, a 10-acre respite property near Balingup. He was last seen about 9pm on Saturday and he left his belongings at the property.

The popular musician had only recently arrived at the property for treatment for an ongoing condition and is believed to have left in his silver Suburu, registration 1CKA 679 sometime on Saturday night or in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Staff at the centre contacted Sam Carew-Reid's mother on Sunday morning, who in turn contacted police after failing to find any sign of him through family and friends.

Today, Sam Carew-Reid's father Andrew said the disappearance had caused significant concern among family and friends. Many had travelled to the South West in a bid to assist with the search.

"I think he has got disorientated down there," Mr Carew-Reid said. "We don't know what state he is in."

Mr Carew-Reid said his son had three sisters and a brother, and lived with his mother in Cottesloe. He graduated from Christ Church Grammar.

"We are all very worried," Mr Carew-Reid said.

"We thought a day or so, he might turn up, but we're now entering another day.

"He's a talented musician and popular socially, he did well at his exams but he has had some troubles."

Sam Carew-Reid is described as 180cm tall with a slim build and red hair.

Insp. Bill Munnee said police were concerned for Mr Carew-Reid's welfare and urged anyone with information regarding his whereabouts to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
